Azul Linhas Aéreas Brasileiras is planning to launch its first international services by early 2015 and has confirmed its first international destinations will be in the United States. Azul will operate its new long-haul routes with a fleet of 11 Airbus widebodies.

According to Delta, completion of the installations in all its international-service widebodies makes it the only U.S. carrier to offer flat-bed seats and direct aisle access in the business class cabins on all its overseas long-haul flights.

This means Transaero’s Airbus A380 superjumbos will easily have the highest seating density of any A380s delivered by 2015 and will also have more seats than any other commercial aircraft.
